Update on the Jimmy C. Draughn Aquatic Center Pool and Structure:
The Town of Valdese Parks and Recreation Staff, Parks and Recreation Commission, and Town Council are all working diligently to provide an open pool for our patrons as soon as possible. It is our desire to see patrons engaged in aquatic activities as soon as possible.
At this time, it is cost-prohibitive to try to repair the Bubble for future use. Please know that Valdese Town Council has requested the Parks and Recreation Commission to conduct a thorough review of potential replacement options during the next four to six weeks and make a replacement recommendation to Council during their April meeting, if possible.
Currently, recreation staff and available Recreation Commission members have visited three different pool sites and plan to visit at least three more pool sites in the next two weeks to explore additional replacement options and develop a final replacement recommendation to Town Council.

-Town of Valdese Mission Statement adopted April 2, 2018
Valdese, in the heart of Burke County is located in the foothills of Western North Carolina "where the Piedmont meets the Mountains." The Catawba River traverses Burke County west to east creating a wide valley and Lake Rhodhiss. The valley is intersected by I-40, US Highways 64 and 70, and NC Highways 18 and 181. Interstates 26, 77, and 85 are within a 50-mile radius. Founded on the rich traditions of 19th century Waldensian settlers, the Town of Valdese honors the heritage and determination of the Waldenses with its historic attractions, parks and annual events. Bordered by Mineral Springs Mountain to the south and the beautiful waters of Lake Rhodhiss to the north, Valdese is the perfect destination for a small town experience surrounded by nature. The Town of Valdese website has been created to assist citizens, businesses and visitors with up to date information about the services the Town of Valdese provides.
